As Young as I Feel™ Serum for younger-looking skin!

 

So many of the ingredients in As Young As I Feel Serum would be, all by themselves, enough to rejuvenate an aging complexion.

 

Several, on their own, could receive star billing in a youth-promoting formula. But we offer a formula that approaches aging skin from many viewpoints, with a star-studded cast of ingredients proven, each, to work. But together, the synergy works real magic. 

 

 

Oh MY MY MY GOSH!  OH MY GOSH!!!! There it is: The fountain of youth women (and men) are searching the world over, right there in your vial of Serum! I don't know how you could improve it, I really don't, but if you say you did, then I believe you!  - S.H.

 

"I absolutely love the As Young As I Feel serum. I swear I noticed a difference the very next day. At this rate I should look like a baby in 60 days! Talk about a new lease on life!" - A.S.

 

Have you pretty much had it with wrinkles and sagging skin? Tired of noticing the lines deepen, your skin look thin, loose and crepey, jowls pulling down your cheeks?

 

Call it vanity, call it what you will, we women want to stay young-looking -- to please ourselves and look the way we feel inside as well as to please our men. I doubt that I will ever meet the woman who welcomes the signs of age.

 

Youth implies health and vigor. Well, I feel vigorous and healthy. If anything, age has given me perspective and my errors and choices have gotten me to a good place spiritually. Shouldn't my body and especially my face reflect all this? Shouldn't I look as young as I truly feel?

 

Another question for you: have you considered invasive procedures and things that tamper with muscles and nerves, in order to gain a more youthful appearance?

 

I have something for you. As Young As I Feel Serum.



This elixir should make you happy. It has me. I use it twice a day, sometimes by itself, sometimes with Ma Jeunesse™ and Creme Rose™. Or with others, like La Creme de la Creme™ Lotion for Beatiful Skin or The Perfect Rose™ Skin Refining Serum. It is fabulous for its own powers as well as synergizing with my other products and helping deliver their benefits deep into the skin.

 

 

Get the sample first

 

If you have not purchased or tried the serum already, we ask you to get the sample first. It is not free as this treatment is costly to make -- no corners are cut, no slightest compromise. Samples are non-refundable and larger sizes bought without first getting a sample are also non-refundable.

 

The sample size is available to enable you to get a feel for the serum. This size does not provide enough serum to use for any good length of time, yet it is definitely enough for a few applications which is plenty for the purposes of testing and introduction.

 

Sometimes we find after trying something that we're sensitive or allergic to something in it. Importantly, the sample will allow you to check for this. However, before you purchase, do read the Ingredients list and look for any allergens you are already aware of, things that cause you a reaction or that you know you're sensitive to. In now eleven years, scarcely anyone has had any reaction to the serum other than good but it is wise always to look over carefully an ingredients list before you try. True of anything.

 

Maybe you will notice a result with the sample, maybe not. Results are not necessarily quickly apparent or rapid. Nature may be busy deep down to work its magic, for this is a treatment made to work with your skin naturally.

 

 

Note: the .34-oz. size is packaged in a half-ounce bottle. Therefore, you will see a good amount of air space above the serum. Two reasons for this. There is a lid we send that does not come on the smaller bottle. We also allow for changes in pressure when the serum is shipped via air. No worries. We fill by weight. That bottle does contain the full quantity you expect.

 

 

 

As Young As I Feel Serum has some amazing, new ingredients!

 

Antarcticine®

This is a glycopeptide, also called glycoprotein (a protein containing a carbohydrate combined with a simple protein) from the Antarctic Sea with cryoprotective (protective against extreme cold), restructuring and antiwrinkle properties. It is Ecocert-approved (a body that certifies "natural and organic") and preserved wtih salicylic acid.

 

The story is amazing.

 

During the Antarctic summer of 1988, a Spanish scientific expedition collected mud samples from the inlet, Admiralty Bay, on King George Island, Antarctica. A new bacterial strain, Pseudoalteromonas Antarctica, was isolated from these samples and characterized. During growth, the bacteria produced a particular material composed of glycoproteins believed to help the bacteria retain water, adhere to surfaces and withstand the extreme cold.

 

Its natural functions have been proven tp regenerate and protect the skin.

 

Skin Restructuring

In nature, Antarcticine® has the function of protecting the bacteria against harsh conditions. In cosmetics, Antarcticine® maintains its natural bio-protective properties and promotes remarkable skin-regeneration and enhanced wound healing.

 

In Vitro (in the lab) Test

To simplify, let's exclude some scientific jargon. Basically, two kinds of skin collagen and elastin increased in the lab tests.

  • Collagen I increased 128% in 15 days
  • Collagen IV increased 81% in 15 days
  • Elastin Levels increased 31% in 15 days

 

In Vivo (on live people) Test on Volunteers

Skin topography ( love that term)  analyses were performed by obtaining silicon imprints (clever way to do that) from around the eyes of 10 healthy women volunteers.

The product tested was a cream containing 5% Antarcticine and it was applied twice daily for 30 days.  Analysis of silicon imprints obtained before and after 30 days of treatment indicated the depth of wrinkles decreased an average of 44%, with maximum values between 50 and 60%.

 

Benefits of Antarcticine®

  • Helps the skin retain water, preventing skin dryness
  • Presents a cryoprotective effect due to its ability to modify the morphology (form or structure) of ice crystals
  • Stimulates fibroblast adhesion (fibroblast - helps connective tissue be created, important in healing of wounds) and keratinocyte growth (the outer layer of the skin), regenerating tissues and enabling a faster healing of wounds
  • Increased collagen type I (abundant in skin, bones, tendon, eyes, cartilage) and IV (the major structural component of membrances), as well as elastin, resulting in a restructured skin and a reduction in wrinkles. (Elastin is a protein found in the skin and tissues that helps keep skin flexible but tight, bouncing back if pulled).
  • Reduces the depth of wrinkles, especially on the forehead and around the eyes

 

 

 

Collageneer®

This is an anti-aging and firming ingredient that stimulates the synthesis (creation) of a high-quality collagen to increase elasticity and firmness in the skin, helping to remodel the facial contour.

 

Collageneer® is an extract from the coatings of sweet white lupin seeds. Sourced from lupine plants cultivated using sustainable agricultural practices in France.

 

Benefits:

  • Increases skin firmness and elasticity
  • Remodels the facial profile
  • Anti-aging

 

In vitro (in the lab) tests:

In a 72-hour treatment, increased production and secretion of type I collagen by 46%.

And there are more results but the language is technical.

 

In vivo (on live people) tests:

25 volunteers aged 45 to 65 years tested a cream with 2% Collageneer® for 89 days.

 

  • Skin elasticity test  -- too much scientific terminology -- results good
  • Facial contour was remodeled, showing a significant reduction of facial oval sag volume
  • In self-assessments, 92% of the volunteers noticed improved firmness of the skin and 72% noticed reduced sagging of the facial contour.

 

 

Edelweiss Extract

 

Edelweiss Extract is a product of Edelweiss plants grown at high altitude in the Swiss Alps and cultivated without pesticides or chemicals.

 

The phytochemical portrait of Edelweiss is impressive, containing anti-oxidant, radical scavenging, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and bactericidal activity.

 

It is harder to describe just how elated I was when I tested this. I found that my skin loved it -- felt very fresh, supple and protected.

 

 

Baobab tree oil

 

What a tree! Always has sparked my imagination. I first read about baobabs in The Little Prince, by Antoine de St. Exupéry. Giant trees, too large for the prince's tiny planet, an asteroid. But they grow here on ours and we have room for them.

 

The Boabab is an iconic African tree. It is called the "tree of life" due to its ability to store large amounts of water and withstand the harsh climate. I find that plants that withstand harsh conditions have so much support to offer our bodies.

 

 

It has great strength and longevity. The average life span of the Baobab tree is 500 years and individual trees can live more than 2,000 years. Appropriate to this serum, wouldn't you say?

 

Ancient folklore suggests that water infused with baobab seeds gives strength, good health and good fortune.  Strength, health, fortune, oh, my!  Makes me want to travel to Africa for a sip of baobab water.

 

This richly endowed oil soothes dry, chapped skin, reduces redness and effectively hydrates the skin.

 

 

 

 

 

And here are some other, earlier-added fabulous ingredients.

 

One, melon concentrate. Melon is a known anti-aging ingredient. I could not find any supportive evidence that the only melons of value are from the south of France, though to be fair, I am not suggesting otherwise. The kind of melon referred to is cantaloupe so I tested cantaloupe concentrate. I then added honeydew and made a powerful concentrate from these organic melons. In the hope that I didn't need to board a plane for France (well, sort of hoping), I tried the concentrate on my skin. In the testing phase, all our faces looked much fresher. The results were stunning.
 

 

From apples! Apple stem cells from a rare Swiss apple that stays fresh for a very long time. The apple comes from one particular orchard that dates back to the 1700's. Way back then, the farmer made a hybrid to withstand decay. Thank you, long-gone Swiss farmer! The stem cells from this apple have almost incredible age-defying properties.


 
The apple stem cells translate their regenerative activity to our skin stem cells, helping activate and actually protect them from degradation and stress, protect against ultraviolet light and reduce alterations in gene expression
that come about through age. Gene expression is fresh and proper triggering of the gene code — one way to explain that. Clinical trials have shown increased longevity and health of skin cells and decided anti-wrinkling effects.

 

All ingredient, including the many hughly nutritive oils, plant waters (hydrisols), extracts and essential oils in As Young As I Feel Serum are in optimum amounts for the highest synergy and result.

And for those of you interested....

 

Emu Oil

 

Emu oil is the most abundant ingredient of my serum. This oil ranks as one of the very most effective cosmetic and anti-aging ingredients.

 

The emu is the Australian national bird, related to the ostrich, kiwi and cassowary. Aborigines held this bird to be of the highest importance in their lives. They used it for its healing properties and created clothes, food, shelter from it. They also derived spiritual meaning from the emu as a gift of God, much as Native Americans did from the bison. Read on. Why they held it in such esteem will become more apparent.

 

The oil I use is fully refined (certified by the AEA (American Emu Association) don't tell me you didn't know that existed?) and in this case, this is important for purity.) The emus from which our oil is derived are raised free-range, and never fed hormones or anti-biotics in their natural feed. Emu oil is a non-toxic, anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory oil which offers regenerative, soothing, healing, emollient and moisturizing effects to the skin which are astounding. Emu oil is a superb moisturizer and emollient, perhaps the best, and it is known to regenerate collagen and restore elasticity to the skin.

 

Here is some amazing news: emu oil penetrates deep into the dermis, into all the seven layers of skin. Its ability to pull the other beneficial ingredients into all layers of the skin is unparalleled. Why it penetrates so easily is perhaps also due to its lack of phosphorus. According to Alabama researcher, Allen Strickland, "There's no phosphorus in our skin. If you put anything on your skin that has phosphorus in it, your skin is "programmed" to keep it from penetrating. Anytime you put anything on your skin that is phospholipid deficient, or has no phosphorus, it penetrates right through.&quot.

 

Emu oil has been found in a study by Dr. Margaret C. Craig-Schmidt, Associate Professor of Nutrition and Food Science at Auburn University to be a very rich source of fatty acids such as linoleic acid and oleic acid and its fatty acid composition is very similar to that of human skin. It is possible that similarity is part of why emu oil is so healing to our skin.

 

And "It was interesting to note that when I looked through the literature concerning the drug and cosmetic industry," expressed Dr. Craig-Schmidt, "I learned that this (oleic) fatty acid is a known enhancer of transport of bio-active compounds through the skin. In other words, the high presence of oleic acid in the Emu oil may be one of the reasons that it is able to penetrate the skin to a large degree and at the same time be able to carry active compounds through the skin where they can have an effect in the body."

 

Emu oil has powerful, all-natural anti-inflammatory properties. It has been found to reduce redness, itching and scaling that can be associated with various skin conditions and is used successfully to treat arthritis, psoriasis, balding, acne, age spots, scarring, eczema (reduces both irritation and scarring), joint pain, swelling and stiffness, bruising, burns, soothing of post-surgery wounds, and the list goes on and on. In Australia, Dr. G.R. Hobday clinical use over ten years of emu oil has been mainly for the skin, treating "dry skin problems, muscle aches and pains, and the treatment of wounds." There are also anecdotal (as reported in testimonials of people) reports of results for shingles, psoriasis, carpal tunnel syndrome, diaper rash and circulation problems especially as regards the extremities. It's good stuff!

 

What moved me most to use emu oil is the fact that it has been proven to stimulate the regeneration of collagen. It is phenomenally restorative. Research studies have revealed that with the use of emu oil, dry, aging skin actually thickened by 2-3 times! (Study: "Influence of Emu Oil on Skin Thickness in Older Individuals" by Dr. Leigh Hopkins, from a presentation given at an AOCS (American Oil Chemists Society) Session in Chicago, IL, May 1998.

 

Plus, the oil was found noticeably to reduce wrinkles and age spots (ref: "Moisturizing and Cosmetic Properties of Emu Oil" a double-blind study, presented at the AEA national convention in Nashville, Tennessee. August 1994 by Alexander Zemtsov, M.D., M.S. Indiana Univ School of Medicine, Monica Gaddis, Ph.D. Ball Memorial Hospital, Victor Montalvo-Lugo, M.S. Ball Memorial Hospital and other studies.)

 

Emu oil (in testing done at the University of Texas at Houston) was found to be a non-comedogenic [pore-clogging] substance, helping to keep the skin healthy.

 

With the use of emu oil by over 500 patients over ten years as reported by Dr. G.R. Hobday of Australia, no allergic reactions have been reported. The doctor says, "From clinical experience with Emu oil, it became obvious that its major actions were its anti-inflammatory properties and its ability to penetrate the skin. It also appears to provide some solar protection."

 

From studies in the early 90s, "The potent anti-elastase [elastase is a pancreatic enzyme that digests elastin] activity demonstrated could provide an anti-degenerative effect on dermal tissues particularly during dermal damage through strong UV radiation (sunburn)."

 

I could have just stopped at emu oil, but there's more.



Matrixyl(tm) 3000

 

This amazing ingredient is an amino-peptide complex (contains Palmitoyl Oligopeptide and Palmitoyl Terapeptide-3) proven in studies to greatly and quickly help reduce the signs of aging. As messenger molecules, these are capable of regulating cell activities; the activate cellular renewal processes that have weakened with age. A French study presented at the 2002 World Congress of Dermatology showed that over the four months of the study, Matrixyl brought about

  • a 50% decrease in wrinkle depth
  • a 68% decrease in wrinkle density
  • a 24% decrease in wrinkle volume

 

Wrinkle density, volume, depth? Well, anyway, it reduces wrinkles. I'm happy. And the deeper the wrinkle, the more dramatic the effects. A separate study showed positive benefits in collagen and elastin, and another study showed significant benefits for reducing age spots, dark circles and improving skin firmness.

 

Matrixyl 3000, a further advancement and quite another complex from the original Matrixyl, has been shown to be significantly more effective in reconstructing and repair the skin. My serum contains 10% Matrixyl 3000.

 

Cells called fibroblasts deep in the skin produce collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin help give the skin its youthful, moist, plump, thick appearance. Fibroblasts come to the aid of damaged skin by regenerating collagen and elastin. As we age, our fibroblasts become less and less effective and our skin looks more and more dried up, blotchy, thin and wrinkly. Polypeptides send the message to fibroblasts to get busy and produce collagen and elastin. Now the skin can once again hold water properly and look smoother and younger.

 


Colloidal Copper and Colloidal Gold

 

These copper and gold colloids are actual nanoparticles of the metals and have been reported (anecdotal, testimonial evidence) to have amazing skin anti-aging benefits. We need these metals in trace amounts. I use the actual colloids, the true colloidal metals, as differentiated from ionic metals; the vast majority of products containing what are called colloidal copper, silver and so on, are ionic. Ions are not the same as particles of the metal themselves and do not have the same effects. True colloids are safe and beneficial. If you wish to find out if what is called a colloid is in fact one, this may help: ionic metal solutions are clear, the colloids show their color. In my formulation, for the greatest results, I include far more than usual tiny, indeed, nominal amounts added in some skin care product

I was really intersted in trying the serum with the new additions of the melon and apple stem cell. Boy, was I thrilled! Each morning I would look into the mirror and see smoother skin. It seemed so amazing. I have used up a small bottle and am now awaiting arrival of my big bottle. I plan to never be without this product since it is actually the first thing I've tried in many years (I am 61) that has really made a difference and so quickly. My skin looks fresher, plumper and smoother. Just plain better and who doesn't want that? I love it! The smell is wonderful and the texture is luxurious too.A real pleasure to apply. Evan has created a really outstanding serum here. Thank you Evan!
